David Stephen Bridges (born 22 September 1982) is an English footballer who most recently played for King's Lynn Town as a midfielder and was also First Team Coach.
Bridges started his career with local side Cambridge United, progressing through the club's youth system and eventually breaking into the first-team in 2001. He spent three seasons at Cambridge, but was released at the end of the 2003–04 season after failing to agree terms on a new contract. Bridges had a brief spell in Latvia playing for FK Rīga, before returning to England to play four games for Braintree Town in January 2005. He joined Histon in March 2005, playing for the club until the end of the season. He left Histon at the end of the season, and subsequently earned himself a one-year contract to rejoin Cambridge United in July 2005. He played regularly for the club for two seasons, but was released again in 2007.
Bridges then joined Kettering Town ahead of the 2007–08 season, playing an important part in the club achieving promotion from the Conference North to the Conference National in his first season at the club. At the end of the season he rejected a contract offer from Kettering and joined Stevenage on a free transfer. In his first season at the Hertfordshire club, he helped the side to FA Trophy success, as well as helping the club earn promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history the following season. He was also part of the squad that helped Stevenage earn back-to-back promotions during the 2010–11 season. Ahead of the 2011–12 campaign, Bridges re-joined Conference National side Kettering Town. He left the club after one season, and spent a year at Chelmsford City, before signing for Bury Town in May 2013. Bridges has also earned one cap for the England C team, playing in a game against Italy C in January 2006.
Please join us in welcoming David to the Saints and we wish him an enjoyable and successful stay as part of the management set-up.
